Similar Triangles

A first exposure to similar triangles can be very visual for the learner using the Zome modeling system. Here, young geometers explore the number of different shapes that can be constructed from a set number of components. They then draw conclusions about similar triangles. Tip: This can be extended to include trying to build similar triangles and comparing the angles and sides of each.
